All the reviews that are posted are true still. The Verizon air card is very fast in evo and the Sprint air card is very slow in 1x. Still can't understand why this place has no wi-fi. There is still lots of people that stay over the 30 day limit. It's like most other places as in who you know.

A very nice place to stay and lots of history. Staff that run this place are very friendly and go out of their way to help you. There is not much to do here except watch the deer and turkeys and visit with other campers. If you need medical treatment of any large amount you have to drive about 40 miles. Wal-Mart is about 35 miles away but there is a grocery store in Brackettville which is just out the gate. The Wi-Fi works good except when the park fills up. That is to be expected. Sprint air card works in EVO and is fast.

This is a military campground for active duty, retires, etc. No Wi-Fi but sprint air card works great. Verizon air card will not work at all. There is a small fence between each site . The sites are really long and about 30 ft wide. Commissary about 5 blocks away and BX one block. A really nice place to stay for a short time. Lots of flying aircraft as it is a flight school. Only time I have ever seen 1st and 2nd it's on duty at the gate checking ID cards. Was told they had to have something to do while waiting for a class to begin.

This was one of the better RV parks we ran into on hwy 90 from Van Horn to Del Rio. The Wi-Fi works great. Good electric and water pressure. Sites were long and wide. The Passport America rate is $12.50 and worth ever penny. I would stay here again if in the area and would recommend it to anyone. We stayed in the 50 amp area. I noticed a sign on the front fence that the place is for sale. Would make someone a nice place.

A very nice RV park. We stayed in the full hook up and had a nice view of the lake or river. The landscape was desert but plants arranged nicely. No WiFi but low signal on Sprint air card let me on line. Would stay here anytime I am traveling through. At this time of the year no reservation was required and only 4 or 5 campers in the full hook up area.

Nice friendly check in. Our price reflects 3 people and tax. The sites are long and level but close together. I would stay again if in the area. Its just all gravel and dusty but okay for a stop over. Without my hearing aid in I did not hear any noise. The Wi-Fi and cable worked good.

Is an OK park for a short stay, to visit the ruins. I couldn't find any restrooms or showers so I do not believe they have any. Price was with tax included and I consider it cheap. Wi-Fi was not strong but worked OK. Would stay again if in the area.

A good enough campground for a short stay. Wi-Fi and cable TV does not work except in the office. Not told this until after payment. Payment is cash only with no receipt. Bet this man has lots of un reported monies. Our price reflects PPA supposedly, which is like most PPA campgrounds now. It's never 1/2 price after the add ons. Had nice view and large sites. Doubt if I would stay again.

A nice clean park. Wi-Fi was okay. Sites were not level but with a 3 in board under the wheel it worked ok. No shade at my site (35) except one small tree on one side, but it was only 84 outside with a strong wind so it was okay. Check in was friendly and have not seen a cleaner bathroom and showers. Would stay again if traveling through Kingman.

As stated no shade but the rest of the park is great. Individual bathrooms w/showers. Great price buffets all three meals. Has a rec room etc. The price was with AAA and 3 people. Would stay again if needed to.

One of the better military campgrounds. Sure beats anything else offered around Las Vegas in price and amenities. We paid the extra dollar for an extra person, well worth it. Second time we have been here about 3 or 4 years apart and its only bigger and better. We had several trees around our site so we didn't get all the hot sun but still warm. Will come here anytime we are in the area as I can't say enough good about this place without repeating others.

This is one great little park. Has good Wi-Fi and full hook ups. The down town area starts about 3 blocks from here and has a nice city park across the street. Has donut and coffee breakfast but you have to be there about 6:30 am or they run out and do not restock. The thirty dollars was tax included after a AAA discount. The check in gal was very nice and friendly. Would stay again if in the area. Nothing bad about this place.

This is only a stop over camp ground. The Wi-Fi can only be accessed near the office and no sites available there. The price would be high in other parts of the country. Don't know why so high here. Was offered the chance to pick out a site. No shade in any sites available. Nice people running place and hard working too. They were working on trimming trees and removing dead ones. All gravel and somewhat level. Sprint and Verizon air cards worked in EVO and fast.

As others have written, this is an excellent campground. There is not enough words to describe the outstanding qualities here. The check in gals were friendly and informative. The grounds were very clean with pine trees and cones. I could spend forever in this park. There are lots of trains but they don't bother me as I take out my hearing aid. Has a large box store and commissary and they are well stocked.

Fairly good park. A very nice 12 yr old checked us in and she was very efficient. The park is nice enough, but all gravel, and the trees aren't mature enough for much shade. We were asked if we had dogs and said no so they put us in front of the dog pen. So much for being efficient, lol. Wi-fi works great. The price of the BBQ has gone up. We didn't buy any as at their prices it would have made my stomach hurt as all over priced food does. The sites were not that level. I placed risers on one side, and it was okay. Was only here for one night so it all worked out.

This is a good enough place for one night. Easy check in. Near a river and has two ponds but no swimming. Wi-Fi is available for 5.95 a night. The Verizon and sprint air cards work great so saved that much. My rates reflect Passport America with 5.00 per night for 50 Amp. Saved about 8 dollars with the Passport America which is about all a person can expect any more with all the extra charges the campgrounds throw in. This place is all gravel and dusty. No shade trees but wasn't hot the day we pulled in (75 degrees) and got down in the 40's that night.

I agree with the other post. This is one of the better cg's in the area. The Wi-Fi was ok in our site (25) after being told that the Wi-Fi was being worked on for over two months. Guess we were lucky. The staff is great and loaned us a cd of Custer's Battle Field Tour. Trains did not bother me as I sleep with my hearing aid out. The prices were a little high even with a military discount, but everything else in the area is expensive too. Only thing I did not like was the gravel road. Really dusty and I had just washed my truck and trailer. Oh well, can't have it all. I would return again maybe just for the free ice cream.

Used this campground because it was only $30 compared to most I called around here which was $60 and up. Some of the sites were on concrete but I chose a gravel site as it was closer to the showers. Was a good place for seeing the sights of Mt. Rushmore etc. The price is the only thing this campground has going for it.

A great campground with friendly staff. Keeps the park clean and the grass cut. Some of the campers are to lazy to walk their dogs, lets them out the door to do their stuff then lets them back in, would hate to walk around their campers or get that spot to move in. Lots to do here with the twin cities and all. The only swimming pool is the city park and there is a charge for that. If you call to reserve a spot you can only reserve one without sewer but can upgrade for a FHU: $22 dollars a night and if you stay a week, the 7th night is free. No taxes are charged. A great price these days.

This park is okay, not great but has good features. Wi-Fi works okay but sprint air card is faster. Narrow sites with a little green grass (about 10 ft ) between campers. Dirt and gravel roads and camper spots. When it rains there is a puddle around the camper about 2 inches deep. Our rates were suppose to be Passport America but like most of Passport rates it was not right. The regular rates are 27 dollars a night and here the Passport America rates are 18. Need 3 sewer hoses to hook up and 50 ft of water hose. The folks that run the campground are really friendly. There is a good book swap room that has lots of books. The lake has a small beach area roped off to wade in. I did not see any trees that would be considered shade for campers unless you were here when the park first opened. Lots of homesteaders here but nicely kept park models and RV's. Would stay here again if in area.

A great place for the money. Lots of shade and fairly decent size spaces. We have a 42 ft tt with 50 amp and 3 slides and had no problems, had to use3 sewer hoses and 3 water hoses but other than that no problems setting up. Sprint and Verizon air cards worked and were fairly fast. We stayed 5 days in the terrace section. They have full hook ups in the terrace section.

A great place to stay awhile. Prices are cheap and Wi-Fi worked really good for me. Couldn't fine the bathrooms or showers so don't know about them. We always use our own anyway. Know they are clean. This is the 2nd time here, once about 4 yrs ago and this place has really changed for the better. lots of new sites and plenty of places to park. Would recommend this place to anyone that comes thru here and I would camp here again anytime I am in the area.

This is a nice clean park but it has gone to the dogs. Until last week there was a no pet policy, now its changed. There is no WiFi or swimming pool but the beach is within walking distance. The wife and daughter went wading and got some kind of redish oil on them. Got to see the ROTC in training. (Looked like a nice bunch of younguns, so I think it was Jr. ROTC.) The price is high for what you get, but the cheapest in the area. I was staying here to get some repairs done on the air conditioner. I would come back if needed to, but not by choice.

We went through 3 different hookups for 50 amp service. The boxes that we plugged into, kept quitting. Host said he never expererence that before and did not know what was wrong. Clean campground and close to historical spots but would not stay here again due to electric problems, and it has no bathrooms and showers. Too high a price for campground, but the cheapest in area.

I found this campground to be one of the best I have stayed at in a while. It is expensive but everything works great. We stayed two days so as to visit Valley Forge National Park and Liberty Bell National Park.. The check in was easy and friendly. Would recommend to anyone and would stay here again if in area.

A very nice park but is too expensive for what you get. We requested a 70 ft pull through and got a 40. We stayed hooked up as the lady said lots of campers do for over night. Worked for us. Sprint wireless card was useless and there's no WiFi. Sites were so close together our slide almost touched the neighbor's canopy, will try to find a different place next time.

Our second time here. It's a central location for visiting with all the relatives. Got great WiFi from Cheers and Waffle Hut on my receiver. Price is based on a monthly rate. A no thrills park, but the people are really nice and helpful. I found out that the host let us stay fifty dollars cheaper than the $450 monthly rate. I believe it has since gone up in price, but still worth it.

The WiFi works but very slow, Sprint air card works and is fast. The sites are somewhat unlevel and all have rear FHUs. Need longer than normal cables and hoses. Lady at check in was very friendly and helpful. The park is very clean but has very little to do other than visit friends and look around Maryland. Has a nice clean swimming pool. Very quiet place but kind of pricey. Would stay here again if needed to.

This park is not worth the monthly rate of 430 dollars. There is no actives at all. the mosquitoes (in swarms) will attack you if you walk across the grass and even on your concrete patio. Does have large concrete patios and all people are friendly. Like all campgrounds, the people are let their dogs do their business by their campers. Some are tied up outside so the owners won't have to walk them. We got here the 15th of Nov 09 and will be here till may of 2010 I guess if there is anything left of me from the mosquitoes. The commissary is great and the fitness is one of the best I have used. I hate the wind and all the rain but sure enjoy the view. Lots of dead fish from the red tide around the banks and piers now. The Wi-Fi cost extra but they inform you that its not worth it. I use Sprint and Verizon air cards on EDO. Works great.

This is suppose to be a resort, but it is far from it. The wi-fi didn't work at all the campground areas. When management was notified by me and other customers they blamed it on the telephone company. When I asked why it worked in some of the park they shrugged their shoulders and said they didn't know what was wrong but it wasn't their fault. The spaces are narrow and just barley long enough for my 40 ft travel trailer and Excursion. The lake is just a big pond like stated before. The people in office are nice even if they don't know why the wi-fi doesn't work. I did not find the $3.50 breakfast. I sure wouldn't stay here again at these prices and no wi-fi.

This is the most perfect campground I have run across during my 6 years on the road. Our stay was a week thus 11 dollars a night. Many different bathrooms thru out the CG also Wi-Fi extenders. Wi-Fi was great but cable is a little limited. Would stay here anytime and would come back anytime traveling thru Amarillo.

We were in site 27 in a 40-footer and had plenty of room. There were no sites in front of us. They have some construction going on now but its a nice park. Wi-Fi worked great and over 60 channels of cable TV. Think it has pay showers: didn't use them as we always use ours. If it hadn't been going to snow, we would have stayed a week and looked around Lamar: interesting town. So we only stayed one night. The lady that checked us in was great. Wish all cg's personnel were that nice.

This campground is ok for a stop over but so crowded with campers that it's like being in a sardine can. The host was friendly and helped me get into a very narrow pull through: after a forward and backward trying to get turned around so I could get into the spot. I wound up scraping the back of my vehicle with the trailer trying to turn too short. I would not recommend this campground to anyone if they can afford to stay anywhere else as the campers are too close together and parked every which-way.

An average campground. I had Wi-Fi from somewhere and it was fast. About 12 wild turkeys roam the campground begging for food: not too wild as they will eat off your hand. We saw some very large deer or something, one had more than 12 points . Not much to do here except eat in their restaurant which was outrageously priced. I had the salmon dinner and the wife had roast pork at a cost of $16.95 each without drink. I would come back as it is a nice park for a few days stay.
